The CFR's short-term housing program provides temporary "shelter" in a fully-furnished two-bedroom apartment for families that are currently or imminently homeless.

Many of our clients enter our housing program with very little. The CFR provides the items necessary for a family to feel at home, giving them one less thing to worry about or go without. From bedding to bath towels to pots and pans, these items help assist our families on their path to stability. Clients are allowed to take needed items with them when they find permanent housing. Your donation will help us ensure each apartment is always ready for the next family.

How do you donate towards the Short-term housing program?

The CFR staff and volunteers make the donation process as simple as possible. You can donate all goods in person between 8:30 am- 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. For large donations requiring pick-up, please contact us to make arrangements.
